Project Complete. Thank you for your patience while wildfire risk mitigation forestry was in progress.
NCAR’s Mesa Lab, with its spectacular perch on 450 acres of forested land above town, is located in an area vulnerable to wildfire. After decades of fire suppression, forest cover on the mesa had become substantially denser than the historic forest.
In fall 2011, the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR), which manages NCAR on behalf of the National Science Foundation, owner of the Mesa Lab property, began a two-year program to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfire and improve the mesa forest and grassland ecosystem.
